For their 20th anniversary project the client was looking for a bold promotional prop to be used in a conference they were holding in Germany. The prop that we created for the client were a large scale ‘two’ and ‘zero’ to form the number twenty. These models were CNC routed out of large pieces of Ply.
The numbers consisted of two layers, a base layer as a foundation creating solid shapes of the digits and another consisting multiple hexagons forming a honeycomb like pattern.
The hexagons occupying the inside space were completely laser cut all the way through, whereas the hexagons forming the outline of the numbers were etched to give a ‘cut out’ effect. The shapes were then place back together like a puzzle. Once all components were CNC routed they were professionally sanded to create a smooth finish, both layers were then glued together followed by the rest of the hexagon pieces filling the top layer completely leaving both shapes covered in a hexagon pattern.
